Ottley’s Plantation Inn, St. Kitts & Nevis

Set on 35 opulent acres, the family owned and operated Ottleys Plantation Inn gives its guests a warm and hospitable stay in a spectacular setting


surrounded by rain forests you will find vervet monkeys roaming around the property and there is a mango orchard on site (at this point I’m sold) to explore.


but this place wins with the most charming spa ever

Butler’s House and Cottage Part II

Continuing on from the previous post, where I featured Butler’s House, its time for the cottage.

The cottage is mor simplistic than the house and only has one main bedroom and living room. BH_The+Cottage-14

The cottage can accommodate 2 adults and two children (under the age of 16). the bedroom leads into the living room and veranda. The living room functions as the second bedroom.BH_The+Cottage-1

living room and bedroom


It is an open plan with a simple kitchen BH_The+Cottage-7

All I see is a cozy place to watch the ocean views



On a sidenote, did I mention that there are monkeys??


Writing about this place just makes me want to go check out the house but mostly this cottage!


You can explore the two ruins on the property (a kitchen and what appears to be rooms), who knows, maybe you can discover a new artifact!


Both the house and cottage are appealing but im sure you will be happy with either option.

check out their site for reservations

Butler’s House and Cottage, St. Kitts and Nevis

I have a thing for historic buildings, so you will undoubtedly see more properties like this one


Butler’s  is a historic great house that sits upon 6 acres of a former plantation on a hill that overlooks the sea.


The House accommodates 10 persons (six adults and 4 children) whats great about it is that the house can only be rented by one party at a time so there is no sharing with other guests.

The pool and gardens are all yours to explore


You can chit-chat with the gardener or the cook that are provided for your stay and the usual amenities are included


  • Laundry
  • Cable and wi-fi
  • Books and media

The island of Nevis is small enough to do much exploring without going too far from your accommodation so the wi-fi and cable TV should take the back burner (you can tell I’m not a fan of lying around while on vacation!)
